Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

Happy Sunday! As public masses resume in the time of a global pandemic, we thank Mary for her continual ‘Yes,’ as our mother. The tabernacle of her body carried our Lord and Savior. Now in every church the tabernacles are opened to radiate the living God received in holy communion. Love endures all things. For this reunion let us give thanks this Sunday. Also we continue to pray for the recently deceased, especially the young, from the virus. May we be awakened to the sacredness of every day. May God grant them eternal peace and consolation to their families. We also continue to pray for all visitors to Wishing you a graced Sunday. Peace!
Happy Sunday! As Catholics we continue to celebrate the Easter season. It can be a challenge to be celebrating while the global pandemic has claimed thousands of lives, yet, we sing the tomb is empty and Christ has risen from the dead! When we recite the Apostle’s Creed we begin-“I believe in God,’so with this truth we are bound to eternal love. Do we truly know undivided love? Have we had fear squelched by comfort? Have we had our wounds bandaged and a whisper come say ‘You are mine. I will care for you.’ Has a hand been extended to you to communicate- Here I am. Come be with me.’ Sunday is a time to praise the Lord. Last week the first apparition at Fatima was celebrated. This image is one spot where the Blessed Mother appeared to the three shepherd children: St. Jacinta, St. Francisco and Lucia. While the world cries out-More! More!, these 3 simple souls knelt in the mountains to receive a message from Heaven. Belief will set souls apart. May we pray for one another thanking God for our faith. May Mary intercede to her son for our most cherished petitions. Peace!
Happy Sunday! From the Gospel of John 14:1-12 we hear Jesus say to his disciples, ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled’...’And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.’ In this time of Easter in the midst of a global pandemic we are reassured to be at peace. Our Heavenly Father, who created us for his mission, knows exactly where we are. It may stretch us for the greater glory of God. He who created the universe and everything in it, parted the Red Sea and raised his son from the dead is with us now. Holiness is being born. On this Mother’s Day in the US any mother or woman can share stories of giving birth to a child or for spiritual mothers giving birth to patience, forgiveness and fidelity to God’s word. The labor of women gives rise to life and beginning again. Newness is carried in the heart of every woman.Holiness in the time of pandemic may be a tiny seed unseen to human eyes at first. Mary boarded a donkey cradling the prince of peace led by humble Joseph for the trek of their lives into Egypt. Our God knows turbulence and sends us as his light into it. He will call us to reside with him in eternity, pray his holy will. Meanwhile, say a prayer that all women be cherished, protected and surrounded by grace. This Sunday be not troubled, and believe. Peace!
Happy Sunday! This fourth Sunday of Easter has us under the watchful care of Jesus our good shepherd. He is the one who will leave the 99 in the flock to seek the lost sheep. People are a little lost in the swirl of the pandemic. Inundated with new circumstances and facts of the deceased, Christ’s resurrection is our banner this 4th Sunday of Easter. Jesus has come to SAVE. Nothing lies outside of God’s time. He never forgets us or our footing. This Sunday may we utter the sacred name of Jesus, our good shepherd. No storm, no wind, no night or turbulence may shake his love for us! Love has been bestowed and to this we say, I am yours alone. If you have strayed, have no fear. Our priests may receive you in the sacrament of confession for they act in Christ. Are you considering a vocation to extend the care of the good shepherd? We are praying for you! Are you already serving the kingdom? We are offering prayers of thanksgiving! Are you lost and do not know the way? Welcome home! Let this Sunday open us ever more to the eternal loving gaze of Jesus Christ who will shepherd us home. Peace!
Happy Sunday! On the road to Emmaus the disciples came to see Christ in the breaking of the bread. Love transcends their doubt, fear and confusion. Love centers us on the eternal bond. May this Sunday fill you with the love of God. Keep going. We still have hope to deliver to others! Peace!

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.
